We did not have any tour packages, just a few online researches and we just went on our own. Bangkok or Krung Thep in Thai literally means "City of Angels". The place is easy and the locals are just warm and friendly, I guess it adds up to that name they are called.
We had are morning breakfast at our guest house and that Thai food was really awesome. I was just excited looking at our itinerary for the day. Of course, the very first place to see when in Bangkok, is the Grand Palace.
The Grand Palace is a complex of royal buildings and where the picture above is located. Feast your eyes with gold around the area from the buildings to the buddhas, to the relics and to just anywhere in the palace. There's just a lot of treasure to see on this place.
Another tourist attraction is Wat Pho. If you are coming from the entrance of the Grand Palace, just behind the complex is Wat Pho, or also known as the Temple of the Reclining Buddha. There are a lot of buddhas inside Wat Pho but obviously the largest and the main attraction here is, the Reclining Buddha which is 160 feet.
Our last stop is another Buddhist temple named Wat Arun. This temple has been around long before even when Ayutthaya was still the capital of Thailand. We rode a tuktuk from Wat Pho to Wat Arun for 200 baht and crossed a bridge going there. But you can also explore the place by ferry along Chao Phraya River..
The historic Grand Palace, Wat Pho and Wat Arun is the most visited place that makes Bangkok, not only the tourist gateway of Thailand but one of the world's tourist hotspots. This is a must-visit so make sure to add this up in your itinerary or when you travel in Bangkok.
